Your aviation adventure at the National Museum of Flight starts here...
You can’t miss Scotland's Concorde, surely the most distinctive passenger plane of all time. Climb on board this supersonic aircraft to discover what transatlantic flight was like for its passengers and crew and learn more about the legacy of this amazing aircraft.
Follow in the footsteps of the rich and famous when you enter the UK's only surviving Boeing 707 cockpit and cabin. Discover how this iconic aircraft ushered in the age of commercial passenger travel and created the original 'jet set' of the 1960s.
Step back in time when you step on board a number of aircraft around the museum, including a BAC 1-11 passenger aircraft and a 1962 de Havilland Comet. Please ask a member of staff for opening times.
Before it was home to the National Museum of Flight, East Fortune Airfield was one of the UK’s key military bases during the First and Second World Wars. Explore the historic site on foot and hear the personal stories of the people who worked at the base in our Fortunes of War gallery.
Packed with more than 25 hands-on interactives, kids big and small will love our hands-on gallery, Fantastic Flight. Discover how aircraft fly, how they are built and the skills needed to pilot them. Could you navigate your way around the world or land an airship? Discover more things for kids to do here.
The National Museum of Flight is home to some of the most iconic aircraft ever to take to the skies. From the legendary Second World War Spitfire and the Cold War Vulcan bomber, to the Hawk, flown by the world-famous Red Arrows aerial display team.
The museum holds world-class collections of Second World War aircraft and First World War artefacts. In our Military Aviation Hangar, examine the roles that aircraft have played in conflict and learn more about the people who designed and flew these incredible machines. In May, our Wartime Experience event brings wartime stories to life.
From the famous derring-do of Captain Eric Brown to the bravery of the women who gave birth in an air ambulance, the interactive touchscreens in our Civil and Military Aviation Hangars let you hear from the people who built, piloted or travelled on our historic aircraft.
Would you build an aircraft in your home? That's what John Sharp of Airdrie did! How did he do it? Find out in our Civil Aviation Hangar, where you'll discover the stories of people with a passion for flight.
